Rd 2, Pick 63 (31): RB James Cook, Georgia


Recommended Posts

I feel like we got the wrong brother.  This feels like drafting Jeremy Giambi in fantasy baseball circa 2001 bc Jason was such a beast.  A second round scatback who is likely to see 50 touches all year is meh.  Should have just traded up for Hall IMHO.  That would have been a weapon.  Now we have to defend against him 2xs a year.

UGA doesn’t do “scatbacks”

Unfortunately for him, he doesnt get to play Vanderbilt and some other weaker schools anymore.  In the NFL, he is a scatback.

Yes, because everyone knows the SEC is “Vanderbilt and some weaker schools”

Bills fan living down here on the gulf in Alabama. Get a ton of SEC news. Heard a Georgia beat reporter 2 weeks ago talking about Cook and how good he is. They are straight up and if a guy sucks they will say so. He said whichever team picks him will be surprised as this kid is highly under rated. He has not been over worked and makes big plays every time he touches the ball. I was fired up after I heard his evaluation. Very excited to see him in the Bills offense.

I've seen a lot of Georgia games and I musta been making a sandwich on these big plays every single time. Pipe dreamin. Breece Hall would give ya a Curtis Martin type.  Walker would give ya a Chuck Foreman type. This guy is like a devonta freeman

OR we could have traded up for Jameson Williams and got Rachaad White or Tariq Woolen in the 3rd

It's kind of pathetic how sensitive Bills fans are.

All Bills fans are psychologists....they always know everything about a kid who just reached their NFL dream is thinking  (sarcasm)

It would have cost the Bills' first 3 picks and probably their 2nd 6th rounder to trade up for Williams.  A guy still recovering from ACL surgery and who likely won't contribute much this season.

Walker is terrible at pass blocking. Critical in today's game.

He’ll be fine. Now with hindsight knowing we used the 3rd on a special teamer and the 2nd on a running back(I actually like cook) I would absolutely trade all 3 for Williams. We can get a CB and RB in round 4 and 5

I can't believe how many "analysts" are saying Cook is fairly similar to Motor.

 

Lol.  Motor has become a monster in short yardage between the tackle make guys miss carry piles back that you can throw to.  He's not great at receiving but he can.

 

Cook is going to be lighting to Motor's thunder and be a matchup problem.  A home run hitter where Singletary is not.  

 

They are absolutely compliments and not the same.  If Singletary was 6'1 and maintained his frame he'd look like Nick Chubb....just not as fast.

Williams won't do much this season.  He'll probably start off on PUP and maybe get into games later-on but barely produce.  Then where he goes from there is anyone's guess.  Not even close to worth it.

 Did you not hear the commentators say every linebacker in the AFC has just been put on notice when they announce the pic. The guy is a stud RB geeeezzzz!
